Lane Bryant, the plus size women’s clothing store, has quietly closed its location in Reston.
The store, part of a national chain, had been operating at 1815 Spectrum Center for about 20 years.
The windows are completely papered over and the sign is gone as of Wednesday.
If you are a Lane Bryant shopper, there are nearby locations at Dulles Town Crossing and Fair Lakes Center.
No permits have been filed for the space.
This could be the start of vacancies at Spectrum as the shopping center prepares for a major redevelopment. The Spectrum was planned as a strip mall as a temporary measure and was always intended by developer Lerner to be a high-density, mixed-use center eventually.
While no start date for redevelopment has been set, land use-watchers have said as leases expires, watch for stores to remain vacant to prepare for redevelopment.
In early 2013, the Board of Supervisors approved changes to the plans for the Spectrum to include 774,879 square feet of non-residential use; 1,422 multifamily residential units in seven new residential buildings; underground parking; and new streets and bike trails.
